Of course after the resumes went out, my biggest fear was going through all the trouble of putting my self out there, and (in a sense) be rejected. Thankfully, the interviews went well,l and I ended up with a good part time job as a property manager for an section 8 appartment building. Its perfect for me! I have always been attracted to social work, and this is as close as I can be to helping people, without actually having a degree in social work. The building is filled with mostly elderly people from the Dominican Republic, and other caribbean countries, so as you can imagine I am speaking more spanish than I have in years. It's a lot of fun. For example, twice this week I was given pieces of hard candy, AND also told I was pretty. How fun is that? I must look like a lost kid to them! The only thing that will make my job even better is getting introduced to some caribbean food (and getting my first paycheck! ;)
Grandparents: The kids are doing great! Even little Jax, who has been attached to our hip for the last few months was happy when I drop/pick them up from daycare. I was a wreck the first day, but after a couple of good mornings, I started to feel better about my decision to go back to work.
Alright.....even though its not caribbean food, I am in the middle of eating some yummy bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers and they are to die for!!! I got the recipe from The Pioneer Woman Cooks. It is probably one of the best cookbooks I have ever read. The cookbook has also inspired me to make the pico de gallo, the guacamole and the cinnamon rolls. All of which were a HUGE hit. I love this cookbook!
Okay, I have to figure out how to hide these puppies, so that I don't eat them all in one sitting.
Hasta la vista Baby!!!
